The local rail service from Edinburgh to Berwick, together with the re-opening of the two stations at Reston and East Linton, may not now happen until 2018, despite previous intimations that this could happen by December 2016. RAGES are extremely disappointed by this, and concerned that the service and the new stations may not materialise, despite their almost twenty years of campaigning.
RAGES are asking people to campaign with them by downloading a postcard, printing, signing and returning to the Transport Minister, asking him to ensure that our local service and our stations are Kept on Track.
Please do this as soon as possible.
Working together, we WILL keep our stations on track!
RAGES have also created a letter which you might like to use as a template to send to your local councillor, MSP or MP (or all three!), encouraging them to press for better rail services in your area.
RAGES is always looking for new members, especially from East Lothian and Berwickshire.
